Rivelin Litter Pick 2019

The Rivelin Valley Conservation Group was joined by the Action for Stannington group in a joint annual litter pick in Rivelin Valley on Sunday 28th April

Around 30 volunteers congregated at Havelock Dam and were given high vis, gloves, bags and litter pickers and instructions where to go.

The rubbish was then left at the side of the road to be collected by car and trailer and deposited in Rivelin Corn Mill car park to be collected by the Sheffield City Council

The two individuals in the picture are Graham Appleby (RVCG Chairman) and Scott Berg (RVCG member) who manned the car and trailer.


Sadly Hagg Hill was seemingly purposely littered again within minutes of being cleared therefore I returned today to clear it once more

Thank you to all the volunteers who attended and for returning all but one litter picker

The details have been sent to the Sheffield Star so keep a look out


One of the finds was a rather decent bicycle found dumped in shrubbery at the bottom of Stannington Road

If anyone has any idea of the possible owner, please let me know

New Rivelin Trail Posts

We have now installed marker posts at all 20 of the mills and dams along the Rivelin. This has been made possible by the many kind donations and sponsorship of the posts.

Each post marks the site of a particular mill and comes with a QR code and an NFC tag which can be used from a smart phone to access videos, images and further information about the history of the site, and the nature in that area. Click here to see the new interpretation.
